Yeah, my earpiece had been muffled for a while. I thought it was just people mumbling before realising it was every call. I spotted you mention the same thing.

I fixed this on my friends phone, dirt on the speaker. Easy
I've done the same for a couple of iPhones in the office. Speakers and microphones get the same problem, giving them a clean out with a small pin made the phone actually usable again.

You can stick a Vodafone contract or PAYG sim in it, make a call, take it out again if you like and request a free unlock code 30 days later

Sounds dangerous.

I use a blob of blue tack to remove dust n shizzle from phone apertures. Gentle pressure (/swisstony) Works superbly. 8-)

Oh, these ones were *caked* - I did follow up with a wipe of (citrus based) solvent and a can of compressed air for the rest of it, I didn't just ram a pin in all the holes! :lol:
